We need to talk about Christmas presents. Yes, we know it's late in December, but if like us, you still haven't started your shopping, then you may want to read this.

Here at Marie Claire UK, we know that there is nothing better than a beauty gift set from one of your favourite brands sitting under the tree. These gift sets are great as you can try out lots of different products before investing in your favourite ones.

Take Jo Malone, for example. Did you know that at Christmas you can purchase a set of mini perfumes, so that you can try each of them out to see what you like? Pretty cool if you ask us.

Plus, a lot of gift sets offer incredible discounts on some of the most popular beauty products, so you can finally get your hands on those items that have been out of stock for ages.

But be warned, it's a minefield out there. Luckily for you, we've been jolly helpful and done all the hard work; rounding up the very best of the bunch. You. Are. Welcome.

For more inspiration, don't forget to check out our roundups of the best luxury candles, the best bath products and the best reed diffusers. We happen to think that these would all make amazing Christmas presents, because let's face it, you can never have enough smellies in your life.
